Well, not a really big deal, but it was in front of a modest crowd of 11. I gave a 10 minute talk on using GD in Perl. You can view my "slides enhanced for use without my voice" on my web site... http://vollink.com/gary/perl/gd/.
A really good buddy of mine came from Florida to visit me in Minnesota. It was basically a four-day-long "hack-a-thon". One of the things we resolved was "The Best We Could Find" way to deal with Wireless under Debian and Ubuntu.
We both found multiple places to deal with installing a driver for your wireless device, and some of these even discussed the use of the "wireless-tools" deb package. However, none of them really explained how to get your wireless networking to "just work". So, I've written it up, and put in online...
All that on top of "Real Life", job hunting, and this pet project that I'm determined to help Andy (petdance) with. I'm also trying to find time to write fiction.
